Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Vacation of a life time.

    "We spent one week in Manuel Antonio and stayed at the Pura Paz. It truly was the vacation of a life time. It was my wife, three sons age 11, 9, and 7, and myself. We had been to Manuel Antonio 14 years earlier and declared it our favorite area in Costa Rica. We returned and had an even better time. The house itself was perfect. You are cut right into the rain forest and it makes for an unbelievable setting. The architecture and design of the house are very impressive and the flow of the 5 floors is really cool. Very spacious, clean, and efficient. A perfect vacation home. The bed rooms are very large, spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is nicely equipped. The high lights of the property for us were first the troops of monkeys that visited us every morning. This was almost surreal for our family and we truly enjoyed the 1/2 hour or so early every morning with these creatures. White faced monkeys and small squirrel monkeys come to the decks to socialize and eat. They were great. Howler Monkeys were very close by and easily visualized in the trees on 2 mornings. We saw 3 different sloths on the property, 2 from the deck, one out near the road, all were beautiful to see in nature. The second highlight was the private beach that is easily accessible on foot. You hike down through the rain forest which is a beautiful walk through a secluded trail and end up on the beach. A beautiful rocky beach that on most days we had to our own, with no one else in sight. There is a small hotel that also has access, so occasionally we would have a few people to share the beach. It has calm warm waters and is truly perfect for families to swim. I would recommend water shoes or water sandals to make entrance into the water easier on the feet. The hike back up is also cool, and it is a good workout. We loved the hike both ways and did it twice a day. We took numerous excursions such as zip lining, mangrove tours, dinner at the Quepos marina, and others. All were perfect for us. Jose is in charge of house repairs and keeps the place in perfect shape. He also does his own tour through the mangroves and to the Island of Damas where he has family members living and running a farm. Ken and Kim are wonderful people and great hosts. They make you feel at home in there house. Kim does a great horse tour on the Beach that my kids loved and are still talking about. This is a fantastic house with great people. I can't wait to return. Mike and Teri."

  • Eye Candy Everywhere

    "I wish I could give more than 5 stars for Vista Oceana. Everything about this house, location, staff and view was spectacular. We had a group of 16 stay at Vista Oceana. From the moment we booked the house until our departure we received 5 star service. I want to first point out Angie, our concierge. She always went above and beyond our every need. She was available night and day. She was friendly, helpful and just adorable on so many levels. She went grocery shopping, set up all our excursions, transportation, private Chef, massages, etc.. Then there was Sylvia the housekeeper. She was there every morning at the same time, and was very respectful. She was friendly and to, went above and beyond. House: AMAZING!!! We had all the amenities we could ever need and Angie did our grocery shopping so we had all the food we could ever need, as well. We were close enough to the beach that we saw the sun set EVERY NIGHT from the back deck/pool, and we could hear the waves. The hammocks on the 3rd floor was a huge hit with all of us. What a view. Wild life galore. Three different types of monkeys came to visit EVERY day. They would come right up on the back deck and just hang around. They were not a nuisance whatsoever. They would visit and then be on their way. AND every morning and late afternoon we Toucans visiting us on our bedroom window sill. There are so many different colorful birds and BIG iguana’s everywhere. Restaurants/Transportation: You can get around so easily. There is a bus you can take for under a $1 where the bus stop is just 50 yards from the house or there are PLENTY of taxis available. I’m not sure what to say about the food. Everything we ate was fresh and the staff was SOOOOO friendly. There was not one bad experience. Excursions: Again, incredible. We took the Midworld Zipline excursion which was so beautiful. The staff was friendly and hilarious. Yet, strict on safety. The lunch they served was yummy. Another excursion we took was the four-trax. We saw several villages and the most beautiful landscape. We then hiked to several waterfalls through a rain forest where we even got to swim in one. Again, the staff was a lot of fun, and the lunch was amazing. The locals were all so friendly and we never once worried about safety. Every one took such good care of us. I can’t wait to go back!!!!"

  • Awesome place for family or group of travelers to stay!

    "As a group of seven young professionals we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Kalani. Nicole (the property manager) was incredibly helpful setting up everything we needed on the trip including transportation and a zip-line canopy tour. The house had everything we needed, and although the pool isn't huge, it's perfect to cool off in during the humid afternoons. The upstairs balcony is the perfect place to catch a sunset, or watch the monkeys in the morning. I would recommend Casa Kalani to anyone who wants a great stay in Manuel Antonio! -Will Mattingly"

  • An unforgettable trip and magical house

    "Casa Las Brisas is a magical house that makes you feel like you are in your own jungle oasis. The pictures don't do it justice until you've arrived and realize how spacious and beautiful this house actually is. The staff that comes with this house gave us 5 stars service. Especially Chef Marco and his assistant Freddie. They were the Stars of this whole experience with their fun personality and amazing cooking. It's not easy cooking for a big group and they were fantastic! We had a 13 people group, all younger couples and occupied all the rooms in the main house. Every room in this house was unique and spacious so there was no unfairness when choosing the rooms. There are so many levels to this house so you also can get privacy if you just wanted to relax away from your friends. We loved Casa Las Brisas and want to thank all the staff for an u forgettable experience."
